James Mangold Reveals Actor Portraits from THE WOLVERINE Featuring Hugh Jackman, Rila Fukushima, and Tao Okamoto

     March 14, 2013


Though we should be getting our first look at footage from The Wolverine by way of a debut trailer any day now, director James Mangold has taken to Twitter to share some photos of a few of his actors taken on the final day of principal photography.  It’s admittedly not much, but seeing as how we’ve only seen a couple of images of Hugh Jackman as the titular character thus far, it’s nice to see the film’s other castmembers Rila Fukushima and Tao Okamoto.  Fukushima plays Yukio in the film, while Okamoto plays Logan’s love interest Mariko.

Hit the jump to take a look at the black-and-white photos.  The film also stars Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Brian Tee, and Svetlana Khodchenkova.  The Wolverine opens in 3D on July 26th.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Wolverine:

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.
